What if digital electronics emerged from textile handcrafts? How would technology be different if craftspeople were the catalyst to the electronics industry, via textiles manufacturing?
Crafted Logic is part of a larger research into creating electronic components from scratch. The piece consists of fundamental logic gates that are created by various textile-crafting techniques. Each gate, being composed of handcrafted relays that can be controlled electromagnetically, is capable of performing a different logical operation.
